  • ANR SAPHIR-2 (03/0903/13)

    Security and Analysis of Primitives of Hashing Innovatory and Recent 2


    ANR program: VERSO (Reseaux du Futur et Services)

    Partners: France Telecom, Gemalto, Cryptolog international, EADS SN, Sagem Securite, ENS/LIENS, UVSQ/PRISM, Inria (project-team SECRET), ANSSI

    153 kEuros

    This industrial research project aims at participating to the NIST competition (cryptanalysis, implementations, optimizations, etc.), and in supporting the SHA-3 candidates proposed by its partners.

  • ANR BLOC (10/1109/15)

    Conception et analyse de chiffrements par blocs efficaces pour les environnements contraints

    ANR program: Ingénierie numérique et sécurité

    Partners: INSA Lyon, Inria (project-team SECRET), University of Limoges (XLIM), CryptoExperts

    446 kEuros

    The BLOC project aims at providing strong theoretical and practical results in the domain of cryptanalyses and design of block ciphers.

  • ANR KISS (12/1112/15)

    Keep your personal Information Safe and Secure

    ANR program: Ingénierie numérique et sécurité

    Partners: Inria (project-teams SMIS and SECRET), LIRIS, Gemalto, UVSQ (Prism), Conseil Général des Yvelines

    64 kEuros

    The KISS project builds upon the emergence of new portable and secure devices known as Secure Portable Tokens (e.g., mass storage SIM cards, secure USB sticks, smart sensors) combining the security of smart cards and the storage capacity of NAND Flash chips. The idea promoted in KISS is to embed, in such devices, software components capable of acquiring, storing and managing securely personal data.

  • ANR CLE (10/1310/17)

    Cryptography from learning with errors

    ANR program: Jeunes Chercheurs, SIMI2

    Coordinator: Vadim Lyubashevsky (Inria, EPI Cascade)

    The aim of this project is to combine algorithmic and algebraic techniques coming from asymmetric and symmetric cryptology in order to improve some attacks and to design some symmetric primitives which have a good resistance to side-channel attacks.
